What are human "rights"? Where do they come from? Atheist Andre Salais of The Unbelievers Blog and Pastor Vocab discuss the concept of individual rights: freedom of conscience, speech, religious liberty and a brief excursus on the Canaanite judgment.
Special Guest: Andre Salais, President of The Secular Student Alliance at Arizona State University.
Atheist Edward Tracy of Tyler, Texas and Vocab debate the question "If there is no God, can there be objective morals?" When we make moral claims, who is being consistent with their axioms - the atheist or the Christian? Vocab holds that atheism steps outside its own worldview to make objective moral statements.
Special Guest: Edward Tracy of Religion on the Brain
